Christmas stories are magical and help put you in the mood for the season. Well this one has a guy named North and an elf named Ruby and is set in Santa's workshop-- SO FUN :) So impressed with the creativity of the writing and who actually helps in running the "North Pole." Makes for a truly terrific tale! I adored this one! Grab a copy and get ready to celebrate the best time of the year!

It's a lot easier to follow the wish of a heart than it is to set it aside and think of others and that's just the lesson that Ruby learns when her mother sends her to work as an elf for the holidays. Ruby is yearning to go to Italy for Christmas, so her long-time boyfriend can finally propose. But when does life work out as planned? Ruby is hard-working and no stranger to digging in and showing determination to get what she wants. In fact, she's kind of a snob at first. North is also working as an elf for the holidays. His harden heart needs to find forgiveness and there's no better way to speed that along than to serve. North is a great character. He's so good with his special needs brother, with the many children who come to see Santa, and with the various North Pole employees, but there are still a few walls that need to come down. He's so kind, but full of pride and really knows how to hold a grudge. There's something magical about Christmas that can change hearts. Just think of the Grinch--his heart and mindset changed with realizations about others and himself and these are similar lessons that North and Ruby learn for themselves. I love stories with growth and transformation, in positive ways, and this is the perfect story to warm any heart, especially with the holidays approaching. Content: very mild romance; mild religious elements (characters attend church). Clean! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*

This is the perfect book to get you in the Christmas spirit! Ruby and North both approach the work of bringing holiday cheer from different backgrounds, but both have a great character arc as they come to realizations about their current lives and make changes that show that compassion and forgiveness are more important than what they were holding on to. They have great chemistry and even though their friendship has some rocky moments, they are a pleasure to read. North is so charismatic and I loved all his mannerisms that made him stand out. His dark struggle of letting go of past hurts contrasts with his love for Christmas and serving others. Ruby is a bit lost and lonely but trying her best in a high maintenance relationship with her boyfriend and feeling emotionally estranged from her mother. The time away from her busy life gives her perspective and I loved seeing her humble awakening to the true joy of connecting with those around her as they serve the children and needy.
